The Black Keys are thinking about releasing a live album. In a recent interview with Spinner.com , drummer Patrick Carney said that the band is considering a compilation of some their performances from their current co-headlining tour with Arctic Monkeys .
“We recorded every show, just waiting for the right venue to do something like that,” says Carney. “You can't put a live record out and say, Live from the KFC Arena. Everything has these name rights. We have to wait 'til we get to a place that's called something like Madison Square Garden. If you released a record that's recorded at a place [with a corporate name], you have to give your royalties away to union people. I don't really know the details.”
In addition to a potential live album, Carney notes the band also has plans to start work on their next studio album. “We booked some studio time for two weeks in July,” reveals the drummer. “So I know we're going to start working on the next album in a couple of months. We haven't really talked about it. We just want to get in the studio and start. That's the only time we have to get into the studio until January, because we're working all the way through the second half of summer, fall, and early winter.”
